The purpose of the first date is to pave the way for the second date.

But if you make too many mistakes that make your date don’t want to see you again, that won’t be happening anytime soon.

What are these mistakes you need to avoid so your first dates don’t end up your last?

These are the deal breakers you’ll need to avoid:

Going on the interview. If you haven’t learned it by now, interviewing your date is boring. It puts most women to sleep. There are other interesting ways to get to know her instead of asking a series of interview questions that don’t seem to end.

Discussing taboo topics. On the first date, there are some things better left alone if you don’t want your date to feel uncomfortable. If the date is getting too serious or uncomfortable, it’s already gone wrong. Choose your topics to discuss wisely and to keep the conversation flowing naturally.

Trying to impress. It may seem natural to impress a girl (either with your cash or your personality) on the first date, but it will only make you look like you’re trying too hard. If it’s not you, then don’t be that kind of guy. Focus on making the experience memorable instead of trying to impress her.

Going to the movies. Or taking her to dinner in a nice fancy restaurant. There’s nothing wrong with doing this on the next dates to come but it’s too common for a first date. All guys have done it before from your brother to your grandpa. At least be different so she’ll remember the date with you. You’d never want to be the same as the guys who done this with her before.

Not being prepared. If you’re going on a date, at least plan ahead where you’re going and what you’re going to do. Don’t make it too obvious that you planned everything and make it seem a little spontaneous and natural. With everything planned, you’ll know where you’ll end up at the end of the date.

Not paying attention. It’s rude to take a girl on a date and then hit on other girls you see. Focus your attention on her and listen to what she’s saying. Showing you’re sincere and genuine will make her feel more comfortable. And she’ll enjoy the date even more.

These are only some of the first date mistakes you need to avoid. The important point to remember is to have fun and enjoy the date with her.
